Ward bug errors cause 90 deaths
A "litany" of errors in an NHS Trust's poor handling of the infection clostridium difficile resulted in 90 deaths, a watchdog's report has found.
The Healthcare Commission called the deaths at Kent's Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust "a tragedy".
It said nurses at the trust were too rushed to wash hands and left patients to lie in their own excrement.
The trust said it had not been prepared for "an outbreak of that size and complexity" but had learned lessons.
